We’ve all heard the saying, and most of us have probably even said it to encourage a friend or rally through a tough time:
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
Take something sour and make it sweet. Turn a bad circumstance into something good. It’s a simple concept, but one we overcomplicate to the point of feeling powerless. Especially when it’s not just one lemon or even the fruit of a whole tree, but truckloads of lemons that just keep coming.
One little girl decided to keep things simple.
Alex Scott was diagnosed with childhood cancer shortly after her first birthday. After undergoing treatment in 2000 when she was just 4 years old, she decided to set up a lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money to help other sick children.
Life gave her lemons, so she decided to make lemonade … and forged a national foundation.
We’re honored to partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) this season. Join us as we support them with our newest charitable cause warmer, When Life Gives You Lemons.
Each season, we partner with a charitable organization to share our time, resources and love. Your purchase of When Life Gives You Lemons helps ALSF raise funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer. We’ll donate $8.50 USD from the sale of each warmer to ALSF.
Why we love Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation:
- It all started with one little girl’s courage and the actions she took to help others, even in the midst of battling cancer herself.
- The foundation is changing the lives of children with cancer by funding research, raising awareness, supporting families and empowering others to help find a cure.
- Since Alex’s first lemonade stand, ALSF has funded nearly 1,000 research projects at 135 institutions in the U.S. and Canada.
- The ALSF is doing big-picture research to find a cure for childhood cancer while also meeting the practical needs of the families impacted by it.
Here’s how your purchase helps:
- Impactful Research
Finding patients better treatments and cures that don’t involve devastating side effects.
- Travel Funding
Easing the financial burden of traveling to treatment facilities by helping families pay for flights, lodging, meals and more.
- Emotional Support
